Every time a new CVE is published and gains traction in the press, security teams scramble to determine whether those vulnerabilities pose a threat to their business. The truth is that, in many cases, these stories simply become a distraction. In fact, the biggest risks are often vulnerabilities that are much less glamorous, yet much easier to exploit and offer more useful footholds for attackers.
While vulnerabilities like EternalBlue and Log4j garner widespread attention, there are thousands of exposures categorized as “low risk” against pre-defined severity ratings that slip through the cracks. However, in the hands of skilled attackers, many of these exposures serve as launching pads or steppingstones to more complex and destructive attacks. The challenge for many organizations is not only identifying these exposures but also determining the potential business impact in their unique environment.
Watch Wes and Joe as they explore:
- The speed, precision, and covert nature of modern adversaries
- Commonly observed “low risk” exposures and how they lead to destructive attacks
- How attack surface management and continuous penetration testing can help you uncover, assess, prioritize, and remediate these types of exposures
This talk showcases examples of exposures found in real-world environments, including a step-by-step view into how ethical hackers exploited them to reach high value targets.
